When you play it in Alert Commander, it plays it across all the segemnts...so not sure of the context you are asking about. If playing it that way and you have a gap, it could indicate that it either didn't get recorded or a segment got dropped/corrupted in the copy process. The only real control you have over that is motion zones and sensitivity.

You can also check your camera folders. Normally you would just see a MediaRecordingIndex.xml file there in addition to a year folder. If you see files that begin with LMN ( and will have a .media file extension ), then these are files that were copied to you disk from the camera but a problem prevented them from being placed into the proper \YYYY\MM\DD folder...which would cause a gap in your clips from the viewer. This might happen if you shutdown Alert commander when a clip is being copied, or a network issue interrupted the copy process, or other reasons. ...anyway, something to check.

Yeah, the clips are being placed into the proper \YYYY\MM\DD folder, but they are separated in several small segments with the gaps in between. When the intruder walked into my property, it start recording, but when he stand in the front of the camera, not moving at all, and looking right at the camera, that's when the camera STOP recording, I wished it does not stop, so I can take a really good at his face. It's not there when you really need it!
I wish the camera have a feature to allow you to configure "keep recording for "x" seconds after no motions", so that the entire activity will be recorded in one segment, one file - Just my two cents!

Well, the clips are limited by design to around +/- 5mb ( ~30 seconds )...which includes several seconds before motion starts, and a few seconds after it stops. Having a configuration option for how many seconds before/after motion would be nice...I think others have asked for that too. Recording more that 5mb in a clip is a more of a challenge for system design ( buffering, recording, copying of larger clips )...so I'd guess that would be less likely to see in the current product.

I would like to see the ability to constantly record video.
A 2TB HDD should be sufficient to record quite a lot of continuous video.
Agreed. This is my biggest complaint about the system right now.

This is something that annoys me as well. Neighbor's dog down the street likes to come into my yard a do his deed. The camera starts recording as the dog runs up the sidewalk and into the yard and then stops. The next clip the dog is gone, and a pile is magicly there
